Leave Them Boys Alone
Now they say, Hank Jr. has strayed away
Of all them songs that put his daddy in an early grave
But his daddy would be proud, he could see Bocephus now
Why don't you leave that boy alone, let him sing his song?

Ole Waylon has been known to play half time
And he been known to get out of his mind
Don't know whether he's right or wrong
He's got a string of hits about two miles long
Why don't you leave that boy alone and let him sing his song?

Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there songs?
You know there gonna do whatever they want
If you don't like the way they sing who's gonna cast the first stone?
Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there song?

Hank Williams was the king of country soul
My daddy took me to see him in Lubuck but he didn't show
Now the people got mad and they all went home
The first thing we did was put his records on
I guess, we should have left him alone and let him sing his song

Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there songs?
You know there gonna do whatever they want
If you don't like the way they sing who's gonna cast the first stone?
(One more time, Ernest)
Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there song?

Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there song?
